Allergy

Avoid taking Spasmo Proxyvon Plus Capsule if you have a known allergy to tramadol, paracetamol, dicyclomine or any other inactive ingredients present along with the formulation. This could lead to allergic symptoms like redness, swelling, breathing difficulties, hives, etc. You should ask for another alternative if you have a known history of allergy to this medicine.

Severe liver impairment

If you have a severe liver disease then Spasmo Proxyvon Plus Capsule is not recommended for use. In severe liver diseases, the liver is very poorly functioning and taking this medicine would increase the workload on the liver and can further increase the risk of liver damage.

Obstructive conditions

Spasmo Proxyvon Plus Capsule is not recommended for use in patients suffering from conditions like obstructive uropathy and obstructive gastrointestinal diseases. Obstructive uropathy is a condition in which the flow of urine is blocked. This causes the urine to back up and injure one or both kidneys. Obstructive gastrointestinal disease is a condition in which digested material is prevented from passing normally through the bowel. This medicine is not given in such cases as it will suppress the mobility of the muscles, making the blockage stay at its place. This can lead to painful urination and toxicity in the intestines (due to fermentation of the blocked food and fluids).

Analgesic Nephropathy

A long term or excessive use with higher doses of some painkillers may harm normal kidney function and can lead to a condition called analgesic nephropathy. Spasmo Proxyvon Plus Capsule is eliminated through kidneys and is not recommended for use in patients suffering from analgesic nephropathy.

Gastrointestinal bleeding

Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is a symptom of a disorder in your digestive tract. The blood often appears in stool or vomit but is not always visible, though it may cause the stool to look black or tarry. The level of bleeding can range from mild to severe and can be life-threatening. Spasmo Proxyvon Plus Capsule is not recommended for use in patients with a known history of gastrointestinal bleeding as it could be a sign of any pre-existing obstructive disease of the digestive system.

Severe asthma and breathing problems

Severe asthma and other breathing problem can reduce your body's ability to perform gas exchange. Spasmo Proxyvon Plus Capsule is not recommended for use in patients suffering from severe respiratory problems since it may slow down the breathing rate causing respiratory distress and apnea (stopping of breathing).
Warnings for special population

Breast-feeding

Spasmo Proxyvon Plus Capsule is not recommended for use in breastfeeding women.

To be taken as instructed by doctor

Causes sleepiness

How it works
Dicyclomine relaxes the muscles in the stomach and intestine to stop sudden muscle spasms, thereby relieves pain, cramps and discomfort. Paracetamol stops the release of a chemical called prostaglandins, that increase pain and swelling. Tramadol acts on the brain and nervous system and blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain to lower pain perception.
